including a clear successor. i'm richelle carey this is a live from doha also coming up china will be on the agenda to take rex tillerson visit india a trip being closely watched by pakistan. heading down their weapons kurds say they'll freeze the results of a session vote and seek talks with iraq plus more than a quarter of a million people are expected at the royal paymah tuireann in bangkok to get a final farewell to the father of all thais king. china's communist party has revealed its new leadership team headed by president paying her mare chang was the only one to retain his spot in the seven man lineup but there's no clear successor to see which with all committee members aged at
least sixty so that means they'd be too old to take over at the next party congress which is a twenty twenty two and that further strengthens firm grip on power from. socialism with chinese characteristics has entered into a new era the new era must new faces a need to have new actions in twenty eighteen we will have the fortieth anniversary of opening up it is a very important thing of determining the fate of china forty years of reforming and opening up has led chinese people to their moderately prosperous society becoming richer and richer we need to draw from this experience and continue to modernize the governance system of china and. the new standing committee of the composition the members what does that tell us about the ambitions for. well this is as public as chinese politics gets once every five years the new
standing committee of the politburo wheeled out in front of the domestic and international press there's always a little bit of jeopardy as to who is on it was the most significant thing of all this time around those who is not on it and in short there is anybody under sixty and that means that there is no obvious person to take over from cheating think traditionally this point in a ten year presidential term halfway through would be the moment for the president to essential anoint somebody as their successor somebody in their fifty's it happened with xi jinping himself ten years ago fifty four he was put on the standing committee this time around there is nobody under sixty on it and that is very significant because that suggests the president she does not want that to be seen to be any coming man on that top table he doesn't want to be eclipsed in any way during his presidency and this puts him firmly in control going forward not just for the next five years of his presidency but potentially as a leader beyond that beyond twenty twenty two the has been some speculation about
president she's ambitions a long term and this will add fuel to the fire the fact that there is nobody there who at the moment looks like a successor to shooting things so let's talk about the key players were to weigh and know about them and what might their priorities. well first of all they are all men that is significant it was chairman mao who many years ago said that women hold up half the sky and yet there's never been a woman on the standing committee of the politburo the most senior level in chinese politics and there isn't this time around either as for the men who are there as i say all in their sixty's the youngest of them at sixty. he's been elevated to run the anticorruption drive that of course is so important to president xi then you've got lee jan hsu now he is like that with the president they go right back to the 1980's in her bay province the two of them were young party officials there he's really been with changing thing ever since and that kind of gives you an idea of
the sorts of loyalists that she wants to surround himself with he's probably the closest of all that's true and then one year and he is the man who's been leading the antipoverty drive that she paying has had as one of his priorities over the last five years that's been seen to be relatively successful getting one person out of poverty every two and a half seconds as a stick they like to bandy around here and he has been rewarded with a seat at the top table and he also has a lot of experience with the un with the u.s. china relationship when it comes to economic affairs so foreign investors would place to see somebody at that top table who knows that thorny issue well so those are three of the key players as to what they'll be doing they'll be trying to put some flesh on the bones of what president xi means by this so-called new era that he's talked so much about in this congress he says there was the era under chairman mao when the communist party was really established itself the struggle to establish the communist party and china as a state that was then became the second ear under deng xiaoping when the
opening up of this country to economic liberalization happened in the early eighty's that's got china rich. paying says that there is a new era beginning now one with continued growth but more balanced growth more equitable sharing of the proceeds of that growth more harmony as he puts it between the environment and economic growth and a more assertive position in terms of foreign affairs as well we should see some of that coming from these men. ok andrew thomas live for us in beijing thank you. is now in india the latest stop in a tour that has taken him to saudi arabia qatar afghanistan iraq and pakistan as you can see they are rex tillerson and his counterpart there are coming to the to the stand there to begin a press conference meeting with the media after this meeting that they have had looks like they're about to get underway and just

touting their ties that go back quite some time there are ties treat with trade economic ties and development as well and also speaking ahead to the present the visit that president trump will be making to india very soon so we'll keep an ear to the questions as well and issue another update very shortly. the kurdish regional government in iraq has suggested freezing the results of its obsession referendum which triggered a confrontation with the central government the kurds say they're ready for talks with baghdad and when the ceasefire kurdish peshmerga forces had been fighting government troops near a key oil pipeline stephanie exact are asking more from near iraq's border with syria. but it's a very unexpected statement really because the k r g the kurdistan regional government has always said the results of the river and m were a red line the demand from baghdad was that the results needed to be before any dialogue to take place so now what we have is an offer from the regional government
here saying let's freeze the end i think this kind of language is important see what that means and whether baghdad accept it let's freeze the results let's have an immediate cease fire and let's go into dialogue now let me just explain to you where we are which i think has some part of that we are in northern iraq of course but it's at the point of triangle where there was fighting yesterday now just behind us those mountains you see around two kilometers is syria and then a little further north you have turkey so this is a crucial point there was fighting here yesterday morning just a little further about twenty kilometers down from where we are between iraqi forces the shiite militias and the peshmerga is a real concern that the plan was for the iraqi forces to come all the way up this border and essentially cut off the border crossing which is held by kurds on both sides and you have the iraqi prime minister today is currently on his way to turkey where he'll be meeting with the turkish president he will then be going to iran these are two countries that are hugely invested in what has happened here over the last week or so so i think interesting now the ball isn't about is to court we're
going to have to wait and see what his reaction will be to that offer from the curtis regional government here staying with iraq and government forces are launching an offensive to recapture the last part of iraq a territory still and i saw hands they've been dropping leaflets warning civilians of this imminent assault i solicit for two major defeats in iraq in recent months after fierce fighting in mosul and how weak the group holds territory in the west near the border with syria. yes president donald trump has signed an executive order introducing tough new measures on refugees coming to the united states he previously placed to ban for one hundred twenty days on refugees trying to enter the u.s. while his administration conducted a review well that ban has now expired it's been lifted the new measures include more rigorous vetting and screening of all those seeking asylum people from eleven countries were part of this high risk by washington will be assessed only on a case by case basis these countries have yet to be named kenya's presidential
election looks like it will go ahead on thursday after the supreme court says they're warning of judges to hear a last minute petition against it the polls a rerun after the supreme court an old president who can jada's victory in the first election in august over irregularities opposition leader raila odinga is boycotting that poll eleven human rights activists accused of supporting terrorist groups have gone on trial in the turkish capital istanbul the director of amnesty international and turkey and several others including a german national and a sweet they were all arrested in july they're accused of aiding kurdish and leftwing armed groups as well as the fish will go on movement blame for last year's failed coup they face up to fifteen years in prison if found guilty because he'll lose life outside of the court in istanbul and there seems to be running a nonstop trials for the last few months seen him put this in perspective for us why this would matter so much. yes richelle in turkey it's
a very busy time at the course criminal course especially following the failed coup attempt today right we are right in front of the istanbul high criminal courts. right now the suspects are inside the suspects who are the eleven actors are inside this is the first trial after the indictment has been filed for about two weeks ago we have been speaking to the lawyers such as suspects lawyers and some sources from the government they are good news actually which is which is that the suspects at this most of the merriest are expected to be released by the end of today's court hearing well of course this is not for sure where we have to wait until the hearing and i have been speaking to some lawyers of the suspects and they are trying to be prepared for the war scenario which is the continuation of their response what they
say is that what the lawyers say is that the indictment trial is a very weak vial and it has been built on suspicions presumptions rather than concrete evidence is against the suspects accused against the suspects who are accused to be a member of the armed terrorist organization or a sympathizer of that organization we have also spoken to the sources from the government size. in the wee wee here we have been hearing that the atmosphere is going to be much more positive but what the suspect sites say that this trial is based on injustice and it has been unfair on till now because the eleven suspects have been jailed for three months pending for trial so they're saying that whether they are free today what's going to happen with those three months or so this is the scenario we are going to be keeping you updated about the details of the court hearing hoping that the suspects are going to be released. hello live for us in
